The global battery-free implants market was valued at $XX billion in 2016 and is forecast to exceed XX billion by 2023 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of XX%. The market is principally determined by the aging population around the world. The aging population thusly increases the hospitalization rate, which increases the demand for implants. The overall increment in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita prompts expanding healthcare expenditure, which thus drives the market growth. Increasing investment in healthcare infrastructure in developing economies by industries gives noteworthy open door for the future development of the battery-free implants market. It was obvious from the beginning that if an electrical device was to be fitted inside our heart there would be some complications: Battery failure, over-sensing (this occurs when pacer faces difficulty in differentiating electrical activity and stops correct pacing), under sensing, pacemaker syndrome, contamination of pacer through the skin, lead dislodgement. The problems are not limited to only pacemakers and hearts, but these also imply other life-saving devices like defibrillators and dialysis. Every few years or so patients must go under surgery for replacement of battery and leads. Scientist and researchers have come up with methods that would charge the batteries by making them ‘self-powered’ i.e. charging the implants by using body motion, metabolites, body heat, body fluids etc.
Alternatives that can act as a power source:
- Implants are driven by blood glucose
- Utilizing energy from the body’s own muscles
- Implants recharged by radio waves
- Organic bio supercapacitor
These innovations may lead to battery-free implantable device irreplaceable and offer a convincing development to battery-free implants technology for patients in future.
